Wurster Coating

For superior controlled-release oral solid dosage forms

Wurster coating is one of the most recognized methods for developing effective controlled-release formulations as it enables a highly consistent coating of powders, granules, pellets, and micro-tablets.

The technology involves bottom-spray fluid bed coating of particles with appropriate actives, excipients, or polymers to modify the drug release.
